I tried using ``Mannequin'' which allows you to freely set facial parts and clothes for free and create a two-dimensional character

Mannequin is a free downloadable web app that allows you to freely change your clothes and fine-tune your eyes and mouth size and position. I tried to make a character using Mannequin, which not only can change clothes and face and body parts, but can also finely adjust the color.

To download the Windows version this time, access the above URL and click 'Download' in 'Lite (Windows 64-bit)'.

A zip file named 'mannequin-windows-demo-x64.zip' will be downloaded. Right-click on it and decompress it with Explzh etc.

Execute 'Mannequin.exe' in the 'mannequin-windows-demo-x64' folder generated by decompressing.
